The conference will take place on Oregon State&rsquo;s campus in Corvallis, Oregon, May 17-19, 2019.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> For the past thirty-five years, Phish has been consistently building a fervent fan base and impressive live performance history, often working outside traditional avenues of the mainstream recording industry. They staged the world&rsquo;s largest New Year&rsquo;s Eve concert in December 1999 with a marathon seven-hour set, redefined the modern American music festival, and performed a record-setting thirteen night run at New York&rsquo;s Madison Square Garden without repeating a single song during the summer of 2017. Despite these achievements, Phish has received far less scholarly attention than many other acts in popular music.<br /> <br /> Bringing scholars together from diverse academic disciplines, we welcome a wide range of methodological and theoretical approaches to the sonic, narrative, performative, visual, and cultural worlds of Phish, including but not limited to:<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>&bull; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Music and Lyrics</strong>: Compositional practice; Improvisational strategies; Band mythologies, including Gamehendge; Questions of genre; Historiography;<br /> <strong>&bull; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Elements of Live Performance</strong>: Cover songs; Concert lighting; Venues; Fan space and place;<br /> <strong>&bull; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Fan Culture</strong>: Fan communities (virtual, face-to-face); Fan art; Parking lots; Tape trading; Issues of race, gender, religion, sexuality, disability; Activism; Subcultural identities; Fan mythologies;<br /> <strong>&bull; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Business</strong>: Business practices; Place within music industry; Tape trading; Early adoption of the internet; Media framing of Phish; Influence on American music festival culture; Influence on the jam band genre;<br /> <strong>&bull; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Quantitative Analysis</strong>:&nbsp;Analyses of setlists, fan show ratings, tour itineraries.</p> <p>Please submit abstracts of 250-500 words for either (a) individual 20-minute papers or (b) 90-minute panel proposals (three presenters minimum). Complete panel proposals should include an abstract for each panelist&rsquo;s contribution as well as a 250-word (max.) justification for the panel. We encourage proposals from scholars at any stage of their career, including graduate students as well as scholars outside of academia. Abstracts should specify the presenter&rsquo;s methodological and theoretical approach, summarize conclusions, and specify the broader academic implications of the research.
